About the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 370 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 300 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' love of reading has become over the years arguably the best-selling children's book series ever.

Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books--even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.

Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Berenstain Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania.

Since Stan's death at age eighty-two in 2005, Jan and Mike have continued to write and illustrate wonderful new adventures for Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear. They live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, which looks a lot like Bear Country.

If you don't want to know the ending...stop reading now.

I love the Berenstain Bears and the lessons their stories teach, but this one doesn't have a great message. It starts off good with everyone having to realize that they need to get rid of some stuff and clean house. That's the good part. The bad part, they drag it out to their yard for a yard sale. They all whine that they don't want to part with their "junk" and then store it up in the attic for next year's spring cleaning. The message I got...Keep your junk and put off what you can till next time.

This book will go in our next yard sale for sure.

A better Berenstain Bear book on this topic is Too Much Stuff.

Format: Paperback
This book starts out fine with the Bear family doing spring cleaning and deciding to have a garage sale. Then, they decide they don't want to part with their junk and will store it in the attic to deal with another day.
lessons taught: don't take care of your belongings. Mama bear was going to get rid of a broken stepstool and a stained pillow. If they're truly special, how about repairing/cleaning them so they can be used?
another lesson: be selfish. Papa suggested that toys the cubs no longer play with could bring joy to other kids. Nah, the cubs will just stash them in the attic only to deteriorate and never be used by another cub again.
another lesson: deal with it another day. Of all the bears, I expected Mama to stand up, but it was actually HER idea to just leave the crammed attic of junk along and "deal with it another day".
As an early reader book, the text/vocabulary itself is appropriate, but maybe the Berenstains are assuming these young children are not paying attention to what they're reading. And let's hope that's the case with this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a very nice story for young children. It tells of the universal experience of cleaning out your attic but deciding that some of the "junk" up there is really a collection of family heirlooms. What to throw away and what to keep? My own family has been through this and this book is a good way to introduce the idea of how to make value judgements about material possessions.

By S.K. on January 27, 2014
Format: Paperback
Starting out, I was enthused and hopeful about this book's message. Deal with the junk in your home! Don't let useless stuff accumulate! Clean! Reuse, donate, maybe make some cash! But then the family decides it's too hard to part with their items, even stuff that is broken, musty, or that could be enjoyed by other cubs. They don't take them time to donate, clean or repair the items; they shove them in the attic and put it off for another day. I was very disappointed about this message, as we try to teach our son that not everything is meant to be kept forever, and most items do not merit sentimental value. There's also a confusing line, which baffles our early-reader: "Many too many to put in the yard" (referring to "many too many things"). Sorry, but this book is not up to par with the many other well-done Berenstain Bears books.
